Jose Canseco says he won't be reporting early to camp, but he does have an excuse -- he's a cartoon.Same goes for Darryl Strawberry, Ozzie Smith, Roger Clemens, Ken Griffey Jr., Mike Scioscia, Steve Sax, Don Mattingly and Wade Boggs.

They lent their voices to the show, in which they have been Simpson-ized into cartoon form. (Smith and Strawberry seem to have survived their re-animation the best.

NEW YORK -- Roy Smith knows Yankee Stadium better than anyone, or so he says. He grew up just minutes away. He played youth baseball on the fields across the street. He never dreamed of anything like he dreamed of winning here.But this particular dream remains elusive.Smith pitched well yesterday, but not well enough to defeat the streaking New York Yankees, who stole a run in the eighth to score a 3-2 victory over the Baltimore Orioles in the Independence Day opener of a four-game series.

NEW YORK -- It was just a few days ago that the Orioles were on a roll. They had won eight of their last 10 and 11 of 16.They were headed for the All-Star break with the kind of momentum that might lead to the strong second half they so much wanted.But the wheels have come off so suddenly that it looks like somebody's been tinkering with the machinery. Yesterday they lost 3-2 to the red-hot Yankees (six straight) to once again fall 15 games below .500 (31-46).It was the Orioles' fourth straight loss to the Yankees, who swept a three-game series in Baltimore May 24-26.

Quote: "I know it sounds like a broken record, but how many times have people written us off, and how many times have we suffered a devastating injury, only to reel off a couple wins and get back in it?" -- Tim Salmon, after the Angels regained a share of the AL West lead Sunday night.It's a fact: Derek Jeter singled twice and has 198 hits for the season. He is looking to become the first Yankee to reach 200 hits since Steve Sax in 1989.On deck: The Rangers' Rick Helling (19-7) goes for his 20th victory tonight against the Angels.
